An event (with free registration) to foster the In silico Toxicology Community in the UK and beyond. Scientific contributions are welcome as are those on ongoing work, regulatory aspects, industry perspectives, databases, relevant software, etc. in the field.

This event is meant to stimulate interactions and discussions, hence speakers are asked to present both about successes and applications that work, as well as areas where still further work is needed, in order to truly develop the field in the future.

Currently confirmed list of speakers (to be finalized)
  • Improving Regulatory Acceptance of in Silico Predictions for Toxicity - Where We Are and Where We Could Go, Mark Cronin, Liverpool John Moores University
  • Towards Improved Safety and Efficacy Profiles of Compounds by Predicting In Vivo Pharmacokinetics using Machine Learning, Olga Obrezanova, AstraZeneca
  • Evaluating New Approach Methodologies for Consumer-Based Risk Assessment: Challenges and Future Perspectives, Alistair Middleton, Unilever SEAC
  • How Drugs Interact with our Bugs, Kiran Patil, MRC Toxicology Unit
  • The Role of in Silico Toxicology to Meet the Challenge of Vertebrate-Free Safety assessments for Agrochemicals, Richard Currie/Sarah Whalley, Syngenta
  • The Role of Bioinformatics in Predicting Human Health Hazards for Agrochemicals, Richard Currie/Sarah Whalley, Syngenta
  • Risk Assessment Using -Omics Data (Title TBC), Imran Shah, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Predicting Efficacy and Toxicity of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors, Daniele Biasci, Cambridge University
  • Linking Evidence With AOPs To Produce Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment (IATA): The Theory And The Practice, Alex Cayley, Lhasa Ltd.
